Medical Information and Communications

The European Medical Information and Communication conference takes place every year as part of the Annual DIA Clinical Forum. We are now in the 7th year of this unique meeting organised by medical information professionals specifically for medical information professionals. Each year, speakers share hands-on experience with current challenges as well as successes in medical information departments. Participants are encouraged to take part in workshops and discussions within the sessions. 

This year, we will be discussing current topics, e.g. the value of Medical Information within your organisation, how technology and social media are influencing MI, how harmonised MI needs to be in view of globalisation, and many more.

More information will be available in the Advance Programme, published at the end of May.
